This refers to the news "Now Private Schools can't hike fees without proper approval" (GK 13/07/2013). It has given a sigh of relief to the parents whose children are studying in private schools of J&K. This was a long pending demand of such parents and it is like dream coming true.
Private schools of the state were hiking school and bus fees every year and that too arbitrarily and they were not answerable to government. Parents were showing their resentment on the hike but nobody was listening to them. Even school authorities threatened that their wards will be discharged from the school when parents raised any voice against the fee hike.
Now we request Justice Nazki sahib who is heading this panel to look into the accounts of all private schools especially in Srinagar city. Also the accounts of previous five years may please be checked. Because a reputed private school situated in Srinagar city enforced a 100% hike in the bus fee in a year. That is too much.
